Quirky, Great writing, Funny, Delightful, Clever

See it if You enjoy Sci-Fi comedies, teen dramas or Joe Iconis/Joe Tracz's work. Also, if you enjoy fantastical stories with relatable characters.

Don't see it if You aren't a fan of teen dramas, Sci-Fi comedies or quirky, zany shows. Also, the plot differs somewhat from the book, especially the end.

Great score, Original, Funny, Great writing, Ambitious

See it if if you would like a musical version of something that feels like an 80s sci fo comedy. Also see it for the kick-ass score.

Don't see it if you need your lead character to have the strongest singing voice. While the characterization is great, the vocals need more work.

Quirky, Great acting, Great singing, Funny, Entertaining

See it if You want to see something modern and fresh, this show is bizarre yet brilliant and has an incredible cast. The songs are amazing too!

Don't see it if You like a classic musical as this is very funky and weird in terms of story but is super well thought out and directed.

Quirky, Great singing, Dizzying, Disappointing

See it if You enjoy good quality singing, a show that doesn't take itself too seriously

Don't see it if You like set design, there was no real set, just some projections, that was the weakest point for me

Critic Reviews (7)

The Guardian (UK)
February 18th, 2020
For a previous production

Glorious misfit musical for the age of oddballs. The soaring joys and plunging agonies of adolescence are treated with humour and heart in this refreshing arrival from Broadway.'

The Times (UK)
February 19th, 2020
For a previous production

It’s not grimly didactic, and even if Joe Tracz’s book is thin stuff, there’s a streak of wanton energy to Joe Iconis’s music and lyrics... It helps too that the cast is so vivacious.'

Time Out London
June 2nd, 2021
For a previous production

"Be More Chill’ is not an innovative addition to the crowded canon of male coming-of-age stories. But its saving grace is its willingness to have fun.'

The Telegraph (UK)
February 19th, 2020
For a previous production

A coming-of-age story with fabulous, catchy tunes... Be More Chill is sometimes as callow and clumsy as any teenager but I suspect that's precisely part of its millennial appeal.'

The Stage (UK)
February 19th, 2020
For a previous production

Stephen Brackett’s production fizzes with feel-good energy and the talented ensemble proves once again that although we may not be originating many musicals this side of the pond, we can certainly perform them with panache.'

WhatsOnStage
February 19th, 2020
For a previous production

It's not a musical that re-invents the wheel despite its imaginative twists and tuneful turns, and the sugar-laden weirdness of Be More Chill might be as odd for some as it is addictive for others.'

The London Evening Standard
February 19th, 2020
For a previous production

Viral teen musical is like Dear Evan Hansen on helium...It’s easy to see why the bleepy bloopy soundtrack is so popular...But the appeal doesn’t feel much broader than that...'
